    • North's Environmental Club is proud to announce the beginning of "Tip Tuesday."  Every Tuesday new helpful & handy information from the environmental club and/or a new energy saving tip will be shared with you.  Please listen & be cognizant of your actions.  Go green!
      • Tip for Tuesday, March 7th, from the Environmental Club:  Today’s laundry detergents are formulated for cold water so using the “Hot” setting is wasteful. Use cold water for your laundry!
      • Tip for Tuesday, January 10th from the Environmental Club:  The average person in the U.S. generates 4.3 pounds of trash per day, and about 55 percent of the 220 million tons of generated waste each year ends up in one of our 3,500 landfills.  Replace Disposables: Wherever possible, replace disposable products with reusable ones (i.e., razors, water bottles, food storage, batteries, ink cartridges (buy refill ink), coffee filters, furnace or air conditioner filters, etc.).

      • Tip for Tuesday, December 20th: Don’t Be a Drip: When you brush your teeth, turn off the tap. Doing so may save eight gallons a day, according to the U.S. EPA.

      • Tip for Tuesday, November 29th:   Paper usage in many parts of the word is on the rise. Expanding production and harvesting of pulpwood threatens some of the last remaining natural forests and the people and wildlife that depend on them.  So, "double up". Configure your printer or copy machine so it prints on both sides of the page. Select one-sided printing only when it really is needed.

      • Tip for Tuesday, November 22nd:  Share With Friends: Share things like books, magazines, movies, games, and newspapers between friends and neighbors to reduce waste.
      • Tip for Tuesday, November 1st:  Do it for the planet: Eating locally grown vegetables offers so much: fresh food that isn't full of preservatives, an opportunity to support local farms and gardens thus helping the economy, and reducing your food's global footprint by using less transportation. Shop at local farmer's markets or you can even do more by planting your own garden in your backyard, in a window-box or even through a neighborhood community-run garden. Look for local produce in your supermarket or trying growing your own indoor herb garden.  Don't forget- think local!
      • Tip for Tuesday, October 25th:   "TURN IT OFF" :  Artificial lighting accounts for 44% of electricity used in office buildings.  Make it a habit to turn off the lights when you are leaving any room for 25 minutes or more.  Same goes for electronics- switch off power strips and unplug electrical devices when you are not using them. Have a great day & remember "TURN IT OFF".
      • Tip for Tuesday, November 15th:  Did you know that using cold water can save up to 80 percent of the energy required to wash clothes?  Choosing a low water setting on the washing machine will also help save water. So next time ...Use cold water.  

      • Two water bottle filling stations have been installed by the cafeteria and the gym.  Each time you refill a reusable water bottle at one of stations you prevent a plastic bottle from being added to a landfill. If you notice the stations record how many refillable bottles have been refilled to-date.
